While evaluating Ranstop, it is highly possible you won’t experience any real ransomware attacks. So you may wonder how you could see Ranstop in action on your computer.

KnowBe4 Ransim is a simulator that uses ten scenarios that apply different ransomware attack patterns to test files. It also includes two “false positive” scenarios, which perform only simple operations, which should not be flagged by security products as threats.
SureCloud Ransomware Simulator is designed to mimic a real-world attack and provides an end user experience, so you can see how your employees would react to a ransomware attack.
